Memories consume
Like opening the wound
I'm picking me apart again
You all assume
I'm safe here in my room
Unless I try to start again
...

I don't want to be the one
The battles always choose
'Cause inside I realize
That I'm the one confused

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I know it's not alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit tonight

Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more
Than anytime before
I had no options left again...

I don't want to be the one
The battles always choose
'Cause inside I realize
That I'm the one confused

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit tonight

I'll paint it on the walls
'Cause I'm the one at fault
I'll never fight again
And this is how it ends

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
But now I have some clarity
To show you what I mean
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit tonight

    Breaking the habit to me is about the demons we face in our lives. Weget confused, it seems at times battle choose us, and if anyone of you can agree with me, when that happens, we can feel alone and can scream aloud in our head. I feel that way a lot and wish I could break a lot of habits in my life and free myself from all of them.

    This song took 6 years to fhinsh. Mike started to write it that chaz came along this song is about drugs and how hard it is to quit cuase' one of mikes friends was doin' drugs so he wrote chester tryed to sing it but chester did drugs when he was young cuase his parents broke up. So the reason why chester has only started to sing this live is cuase when he tried to sing it he would cry cuase it would remind him about his past but I think he has forgiving himself and is over it so he sings it live now! Lp rocks this song is wicked!
